AT THE GATES OF BAXTER

The Australians demand justice and freedom for refugees. About 500 refugee advocates from all over the country have converged on the notorious Baxter Detention Centre in South Australia to protest the continued incarceration of the stateless people.

Behind the razor wire are over 320 detainees.

There were chants of “Open the border, close the camps, and free the refugees”, during the Easter weekend non-violent protest. And six activists have already been arrested.
